Rickenbacker Guitar Models / Re: Rickenbacker ukulele?
« on: October 12, 2008, 11:22:16 AM »
I have only seen it mentioned in a forum and a corresponding tiny photo.
It has 4 strings and looks like a Ukulele. However, the only Rickenbacker reference I have is this photo without any evidence at all. I will contact the guy who wrote about it.

I found information about a 4-string tenor guitar in a 1932 broschure and it could be that one wrongly identified as a Ukulele.

It would seem that Rickenbacker built a prototype electric Ukulele at some point. Could anyone possibly shed any light on this for me?


I updated my models library and added the Model 340S. Is there any other model 340S out there? It seems to be a very rare model and could easily have been a Rose Morris 1998 Export model if equipped with a vibrato tailpiece and sent to UK. But the thing wasn't. Now being an American domestic guitar it got the designation 340S. Take a look!

"- I just finished this one; prototype solid state LS. It's a converted new FG 330. There's a box with an umbilical like the originals, but it also has a footswitch to turn the circuitry on and off, and an LED to indicate the "on" condition on a darkened stage. There are a total of 15 LEDs.

I've been working on it for a few weeks on and off (pun intended)..."

See the guitar in action

Thank you, Herb. I hope the site will be up for many more years to come, I still have many projects left to do.
Thanks for your kind support

Take care


This is how the site looked 4 years ago:

General / 10 years on the web!
« on: August 08, 2008, 11:07:04 AM »
Hi all,
Just wanted to announce this 10 years anniversary. The exact date for my site's official birth is October 14. Although the site started a little earlier I use this date as I obtained the permission to use Rickenbacker logos and trademark from RIC (John Hall).

Back then, the Internet wasn't near the size it is today and it was easier to build a site because there was hardly any pictures or articles about Rickenbacker guitars and basses.

I still remember the close-up photo of my 360/12V64 headstock. This one, a very simple photo, showed how the 12-string headstock was built and there were many who saw it for the first time. A photo shot in Sweden could be accessed from every corner of the world (so to speak) and I realized that it was a huge demand for more of this kind of stuff. I created the gallery and the Models library.
This was done in the early era of digital photography and the cameras weren't very good. Still it was a huge step in the evolution. I think the camera had 1,0 megapixel and the largest picture size was 640 x 480.

Yes, 10 years is a long time......

Take care


Soundcheck / Re: Stage setup
« on: July 30, 2008, 12:58:38 PM »
Yes, I've seen this. It is very thrilling to build patches. I have a few very basic ones that I use myself.
I have made a different setup now than the one i have on display above and I've rebuilt my pedal board.

I did have some problems with the double muff pedal. It is very noisy together with other pedals. It works best alone. Now I don't use the 4 cable method but I still have an FX loop.
My setup is like this and it works brilliant, a Double Muff i the right environment is very useful. I'll post some samples when I get home (I'm on a vacation right now).

My setup is:

Guitar - Double Muff - Tonelab Input - FX loop Send - Wah-Wah - Tuner - FX loop Return - Output.
The Double Muff has a true bypass and the other pedals too. You can also bypass the FX loop and go straight to the output. This setup is very good and it allows you to play with a wide range of sound colors.

I'll write more later...
